Re: Lessons a pre-requisite for top band?
Yeah.. that's putting a financial requirement to be in your top ensemble. It happens, and even with need based scholarships, you could get in trouble for it.
No one ever *does* .. but if you have particularly litigious parents, they could sue, and would win.
Does anyone require enrollment in private lessons for a student to qualify for your top ensemble?
I'm trying to find a way to motivate some of my students to agree to lessons since I can't force them to do it. And yes, they have to pay for lessons (we do offer need-based scholarships) so I can see the conflict with making it a top ensemble requirement.
